Did you have to sell 100% of your patent to IV? As an inventor with patents I'm trying to understand how IV helps inventors up front.
On the question about IV deal terms, I believe that may vary with the situation -- scuttlebut seems to be that the majority of purchases they are involved with are simple up-front sales, but some may involve a back-end revenue share. But in any case, they provide a ready market for patents that can generate funds for the inventor -- without the complex and costly hurdles of licensing and/or litigation.
Thanks for response. Other than their website, you are one of the few inventors I've read on the net talking about their experience with IV.
